My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights. Staff were always friendly and welcoming. Game drives organized my the hotel in the Chobe by land and water are unbelievable. Highly recommend a visit will definitely come back again

We spent 5 days with two of our grandchildren. The staff was nice and helpful but we found the facilities to be a bit run-down. WIFI was on again off again to the chagrin of the children. Walkways and steps in need of some repair....More

Very nice and comfortable hotel at the banks of Chobe River. A lot of wild life species in close proximity. River safari is amazing, with many hippos, elephants, giraffes and tropical birds. Food is very good.

Hi - we were safaried out by the time we reached Cresta - so we didn't go on a safari but the boat cruise down the mighty Choebe River was excellent and we saw amazing game so I would definitely recommend that!

The Safaris in the Chobe area are second to none, I suggest getting the boat cruise in the morning when the animal life is awakening and the water is like glass, but then again the sunsets from your boat whilst enjoying are cold beer are something else. Either way you will see many different animals and birds.
I am not sure if safaris are included in room price , as I did a tour with Pangolin Photo tours, which are based out of the Mowana. For photography they are the best with specially designed boats with 360degree camera mounts.
